    The news we all expected to hear - apart from Albon!

    Alexander Albon hurt at being replaced by Sergio Perez at Red Bull

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/formula1/55388204

    That has the potential to be a very exciting line up.

    Plans for Formula 1 race track at Musselburgh Lagoons revealed

    https://www.eastlothiancourier.com/n...oons-revealed/

    Probably never happen. I remember Jackie Stewart backed a plan for a F1 track near the airport was on and off for years. If JS couldn't make it happen I doubt anyone can!

    It's taken 20 years (and counting) to get a greyhound stadium in Wallyford, I think we'll be flying cars by the time a F1 track hits the lagoons. Wipeout Musselburgh edition

    Thought I recognised the name. More a Fantasy one than Formula 1 then.

    What predictions do we all have for the 2021 season?

    I'll start off - Ocon to outscore Alonso.

    Thatís a bold call. Alonso is one of the best of his generation, it will be interesting to see how he gets on after his time away. I think Williams will be a bit more competitive this year which should see Russel feature a bit further up the grid. McLaren having a Mercedes engine this year will be interesting, but I got the feeling that the Renault engine was pretty good last year.

    United we stand here....

    Alonso's generation was about fifteen years ago, and we seen what happened with Michael Schumacher who had been competitive far more recent to his return than Alonso has been. He's been out of it for two years, is thirty-nine and has an ego that outsizes his talent. Ocon was having a positive end to his season and if he starts the new season well I think we could see some toys out of the pram yet again.

    I canít agree with that, Alonso is one of the all time greats of F1 imo. Ocon has achieved nothing and was easily put in his place by his team mate last season. I think Alonso will win at least one race this season and I doubt Ocon will.

    I see him on a similar level to Vettel, if not quite the same level perhaps. Both won championships in teams built around them and Vettel had arguably more competition in his team mate than Alonso did in Fisichella. The times that Alonso has had an equal team mate in a competitive car haven't ended well.

    He'd not make it into my top ten of all time. A very good driver but not a great. Can't imagine two years out of the sport will have done himself any benefits either.

    "Monaco (May 23), Azerbaijan (June 6) and Canada (June 13) will, insiders say, fall off the calendar just like last year.

    The cancellation of the street races in Monaco, Azerbaijan and Canada will be announced next month, according to reports.

    Formula Oneís 2021 calendar already suffered a number of blows earlier this month, when it was confirmed that the Australian GP would be postponed and the Chinese GP was facing cancellation."

    Not F1 but ...

    The 24 hours of Le Mans were postponed to 𝟮𝟭-𝟮𝟮 𝗔𝘂𝗴𝘂𝘀𝘁 𝟮𝟬𝟮𝟭.

    "We have made this decision because we are eager for spectators to attend the race this year and are taking all health precautions to ensure a safe event."

    "We are working very hard to put on a safe event, with all the necessary health precautions in place.

    This yearís race promises to be another thriller as the new Hypercar class makes its debut."

    Shame about Canada as there's usually some good racing there, but absolutely delighted we won't see Monaco on the calendar. Hideously dull racing and only there to give the mega rich an event.

    Yep, Monaco CAN be a bit ****, however, around 5 or 6 of my top 10 most memorable f1 moments have been at Monaco. It is iconic and I honestly couldnít imagine the sport without it.

    Just seen the sad news that Murray Walker has passed away. Always used to love his commentary when I was growing up.

    Sad news.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, vodka in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "WOO HOO what a ride!"

    Murray Walker was synonymous with Formula One. Like Harry Carpenter and Boxing and Bill McLaren and Rugby. Such is the exposure of sport nowadays we won't see these singular figures again.

    Really sad news about Murray, but as he said himself, he got to live an extraordinary life.

    Itís odd because there doesnít seem to many people in broadcasting nowadays who are so well loved, and as mentioned above, itís likely because sport is so spread out over so many different broadcasters that impressionable kids nowadays wonít get that same experience that we all did. People like Murray Walker brought an extra dimension to simply sitting watching a race, you felt like you were watching the race with one of your best mates.

    Sad to see Johnny Dumfries died during the week.

    Probably the least well known of the Scottish F1 drivers probably better known for the 24 Hour Le Mans which he won.
